This weekend, Steve Belson, a longtime lifeguard and firefighter, who lost his life on 9/11, will be remembered. The 16th Annual Steve Belson Memorial Ocean Swim and Music Festival is Saturday, August 5.
Belson was a lifeguard for 10 years, a son, a brother, a friend, and a firefighter who made the ultimate sacrifice while trying to save lives in the World Trade Center. On Saturday, on Beach 92nd Street, at what is now called Bell’s Beach, all are welcome to join in an ocean swim in his honor. There will be a one-mile competitive swim at 8 a.m. and a half-mile leisure swim at 10 a.m. There will also be a ceremony to announce the winners of this year’s Steve Belson Memorial Scholarship.
